Dr. Vermeersch’s research focuses on the use of technology in the management of health and illness in older adults.  She is particularly interested in finding creative and effective telemedicine solutions to address the complex health needs of the growing aging population.  Recent projects include the use of a telepresence robot for both teaching and clinical practice, and exploration of remote sensing devices useful for older adults at risk for a variety of geriatric syndromes.
